    Open the folder, long-press the top bar of the folder. it will give you the option to rename.

    You'd think they'd make it more intuitive to rename the folders. Why not add an option for this into the menu button (when you have the folder open)?

    Thanks for the tips!

    Just curious, I know how to rename the folders and what not. However, I was curious if there was a way to replace the "folder" icon image? Like say if I were to make my own, say instead of having to rename it to games folder. Is there a way I could just have the folder indicate what it in the folder? Like say I have a folder for games, and I wanted to make the folder icon look like games type thing, is that possible?

    Not natively.

    But check out Apps Organizer in the Market. I use it and it does what you're looking for.
